Like cheese on your tossed salad?

Since I had some fontina left over from a recipe, I grated some on a simple tossed salad that consisted of, romaine and iceburg, lettuce; slivered onion, celery, bell pepper, black olives and fontina cheese, splash of Italian dressing.
Fontina is fast becoming a favorite of mine.

Love cheese on a tossed salad.

Parmesano Reggiano, shaved, nothing better.

But will add many other cheeses.

Feta, Swiss, cheddar, you name it.

Manchego gives a nice flavor.

Never has a tossed salad yet that was not improved by a bit of cheese.

You are right, aintdot

I need to learn more about different cheeses. I didn't know anything about Parmesano Reggiano until the food channel. I haven't tried it yet, however. Contrary to my belief, I was told that when cheese developes mold, you're not safe in just trimming off the mold and using the rest. If that isn't correct, someone let me know. I just hate buying cheese and forgetting about it until it's too late. Cheese is more expensive than beef, for cryin' out loud

That sounds interesting. I have some peaches in the pantry. I may just have to try that soon. Not tonight though... we're having liver and onions, I don't think those tastes would go good together.

Cheese is so yummy! I use it a lot. Another nice cheese for salads is medium gouda w/ caraway seed (in a light sweet vinegrette), goat cheese (with pine nuts and a raspberry vinegrette - so good!), or feta (with olives and other savory bits)

As for your question about mold and cheese, this article might help you: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/foo...rition/AN01024 Its from the mayoclinic, so I'd trust it.

My Grandma Snarr used to do that, and I loved it! She usually stuffed the little hollow in the pear with cream cheese and nuts, but I didn't like that, so she made plain ones for me.

By the way, you can send some of that liver and onions my way. I love the dish, but my husband can't stand it. He doesn't even want to smell it cooking.
Did you make mashed potatoes with it?
